Literally every 'subject' under the sun can be found within the…

Homeschoolers and Chores

Teaching homeschoolers to do chores alongside the adults of the home encourages increased family solidarity, independence and responsibility. What's not to love? Yet, even though 82% of adults did chores as children, only 28% require their own children to help around the house (Dishongh 2015). This may be due to the increased number of hours…
